Hello forum members.
It's not exactly a "new topic", so I hope I hit the right button. Just another introduction. (I'm a bit forum challenged.)
I've been visiting bleepingcomputer for years, typically when a Google search regarding a problem brought me here. I decided to sign up so I can ask some questions and maybe help some others, too. I'll probably post soon about a couple ongoing problems I'm having with two different computers.
I'm typing this from an old (2003?) Dell Dimension 8200, a Pentium 4 hand-me-down which I've *up*graded to 2 GB of RAM, Windows XP SP3, and USB 2.0. I'm delighted I took this machine, which at first just took up space for a year or so. That's because my real computer, a Windows 7 box from Velocity Micro with a 6-core processor and 12 GB of RAM has been out of commission for nearly a year. I've been chugging along this way while I try to figure out the problem, and find time to offload all my treasured data. More about that later, in another forum.
